EULA Legal questions

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Tue Dec 11, 2007 4:01 pm

I am not good with legal speak. The EULA seems to be pretty clear about free distribution of Construct itself as far as it and any modifications to it go.

But am I legally bound to distribute source code and/or files with everything I create USING Construct? Whether I am selling it for money or giving it away for fun?

The reason why I am asking, is that I currently own MMF2 Developer, and I am working on some semi-commercial projects. Construct looks like it could easily evolve into a vastly superior tool one day, and I am wondering what the terms and conditions might be for someone who desires commercial use out of an authoring program such as this.

I have been told that it appears that it's completely legal to sell the end-creation but if someone requests the sourcecode, that I would be obligated to provide it. Which I suppose makes half-sense, since I wouldn't really be creating any kind of super advanced trade secret engines or anything...but intellectual property laws are confusing and often vague.

Thanks for the help :D

If you want to create a closed-source commercial game in Construct, that's fine. The GPL requirements of having to provide source code apply only to Construct itself, not anything you make with it.

Really? That's pretty cool then. :)

I am really liking what I am seeing in construct so far too. Thanks so much for the fast answer. :D
